Great for group outtings, tons of fun! – This is a great example of what a fun restaurant should be. This is not a romantic spot nor is it a place for a quiet evening. This is a place to grab a few friends and enjoy the food, drinks and company. There are booths as well as one large community area where you will sit elbow to elbow with fellow patrons. This isn't a place to order entrees. The style is simple, snack and drink to your heart's content. The "Yaki-tori" is all on a stick, ranging from chicken hearts (very recommended) to bacon wrapped asparagus to quail eggs. There is more on the menu however. There are rice dishes, noodle dishes and side dishes. I recommend the Tako-Yaki (lil squid-balls). Although the beer is a lil pricey (it's almost always pricey at Japanese restaurants) the food is very reasonable. For fun times and great food go to Honda Ya.
Best Yakitori on the West Side! – I love this place! Very traditional Japanese food you will not find anywhere else in California...including Little Tokyo. Great place to bring a big group and get a pitcher of beer and some of their delicious yakitori (they give you a list similar to a sushi one that lets you check all of the different types of meats you want to order). Try something new on the menu everytime you go...you'll find that they have geat items that will keed you coming back. The waiter's are super friendly and helpful too...just don't be shy to ask for service sometimes since it does get busy quite often. Mostly japanese customers but mixed crowd more often now that more people are finding out about this place.
Nothing Fancy, But Very Good! – This local Japanese restaurant has inventive and traditional sushi, as well as hot pots, and other conventional Japanese fare. We had an outstanding beef and tofu hot pot, and a couple very fresh types of sushi rolls. We saw ahi tuna salad at the next table that looks good too. My friend and I were the only non-Japanese customers there. There's good reason it's popular with the locals.
best AUTHENTIC Japanese Food!! – I have been to countless Japanese restaurants in California and none of them feel and tast as Japanese as this one. Although they have the standard "Americanized" Japanese meals, they also provide many authentic dishes that often cannot even be found in little Tokyo. The resteraunt service is also more of the Japanese style, so call the waiters over if you dont want to wait a long time for service. Even the atmosphere puts me back in the middle of a Tokyo restaurant!!
